New York City bike-share program bans riders who weigh more than 260 pounds
Can obese cyclists sign up for the city’s new bike-share program? Fat chance!

It is “prohibited” for any rider who weighs more than 260 pounds to sign up for the soon-to-launch initiative — prompting backlash from riders who say the fat-shaming rule is enough to make them fly off the handle.

Everyone who signs up for the program has to agree to a contract, which states users “must not exceed maximum weight limit (260 pounds)” because the bikes can’t hold that much heft. [link to www.nypost.com]

Fat fucks. If we had fewer people taking cocktails of pharmaceuticals, we'd have far fewer fat fucks. It's the drugs that make a lot of people fat. And being lazy and gluttonous. We need to encourage smoking again.

260 is huge, so it's not really that much of surprise. I'm overweight (slightly) and I weigh about 180.

A person 6'5" and taller might weigh that much and not be fat

But if it's the bikes' weight limit, that won't matter.

If the bikes can't accommodate more weight, that's just a fact and doesn't matter how people "feel" about it.
One of the most important aspects of conspiracy theories is being able to discern when there isn't one.

Oh yeah, like you'd understand anyway.

True. 260 would still be pretty big for some 6'5" though, my friend is 6'7" and about 235, and he isn't thin.

I have a fat phobia


have for decades




I know in labs that want to fatten up mice and rats for studies, they feed them MSG


MSG is in almost ALL processed foods




I know HFCS does not metabolized
in the pancreas like it should and many consuming it will get diabetes

I know it causing problems...


I know many are having thyroid problems


I know most are deficient in Vit D


I also know that serving people processed cellulose(wood fiber, or processed hair from China and India) are not healthyoverall...no nutrients coming from cardboard, paper, wood, or hair...it is filler, even when they call it 'fiber'



ith all these problems in the food produced, sold, allowed, and even encouraged


few will be healthy eating this


Thyroid storms from Chernobyl ARE NOW OCCURRING


for those who do not know radiation



This is the reality


I have a special
mass on mine


the one kind they do not touch


The "White Knight"



still bothers me.


and more like me ahead


with FukUshise


Soon it will not matter as water is being privatized as I type


and most worrying about the morbidly obese...they will have a hell of a time getting away from the medical mayhem about to occur

I'm fat. I don't weight that much but if that's the limit on the bike it shouldn't be a problem. It's common sense. Fat people with common sense always check the weight limit on things like that, you know, like lawn chairs and such.

To the poster that thinks shaming fatsos will help, you just think that because you want to be able to abusive so you can feel powerful. Shaming fat people does nothing but make it harder for them to go for walks, bike rides (on their own bikes), exercise class or what not. Besides, one day one of them is gonna just knock you out and then sit on you, so it's not good for your health.

Having read your post, I'd say that the Country needs to STUPID-shame more.

Not that it will do any good, but it WILL make the rest of us feel superior!!
